WHAT IS AN ANOMALOUS CORONARY ARTERY?

Anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery (AAOCA) is an abnormality of the origin or the course of a coronary artery. An AAOCA is congenital, which means it is present at birth, however it is often diagnosed later in childhood/adolescence and many people may never even know they have it. An AAOCA may sometimes be referred to as a type of CAA (coronary artery anomaly) or ACA (anomalous coronary artery).
